Former Super Eagles left back Ifeanyi Udeze has expressed belief in Nigeria’s chances of progressing to the Round of 16 of the 2018 World Cup despite the 2-0 defeat to Croatia on Saturday.
The three-time African champions will face Iceland on Friday in a game they must win and Udeze who was in Nigeria’s team to the 2002 World Cup in Korea/Japan also has a starting eleven in his mind he feels can get the job done.
Iceland shocked many football faithful by holding Argentina to a 1-1 draw in the first Group D game.
“About our chances of qualifying to the knock out stages, why not. It’s about determination and support from Nigerian fans,” Udeze told Brila FM from Russia on Tuesday morning.
“We need to forget about the defeat to Croatia. The other teams in the group don’t have two heads.
“My line up for this match will be Ezenwa; Ebuehi, Idowu, Balogun, Ekong; Ndidi, Ogu, Mikel; Etebo (from the left side of attack, cutting in because of his drive), Moses and Ighalo.”
